Cenar desnudos : Última moda en Tokio, Londres y París

La Federación Naturista Internacional promueve “una forma de vivir en armonía con la naturaleza, caracterizada por la práctica del desnudo en común”. El movimiento que avanza en varias partes del mundo ya derivó en la creación de restaurantes para comensales sin ropas en Tokio y Londres. Ahora, acaba de abrir uno en París, donde los clientes cenan “completamente desnudos, en pantuflas”. El de Tokio generó mucha controversia por su disposición de prohibir la entrada a personas con sobrepeso o mayores de 60 años. Por la polémica, tuvo que revertir esa directiva, pero aún se reserva el derecho a rechazar a aquellos clientes que, según considera, no cumplen con sus estándares de belleza. Tampoco pueden entrar personas con tatuajes, a las que asocian con mafias en Japón.
Una aclaración: los camareros, cocineros y el resto del personal del restaurante sí están vestidos. Por otro lado, para garantizar la higiene, las sillas están cubiertas con un forro “desechable”, que se cambia con cada comensal, explica ANSA. Y hay cortinas que garantizan la privacidad de cada mesa.

A group of nudists socialize at the bar before dining together at a “Clothing Optional Dinner” at a New York City restaurant, February 17, 2005. The diners arrived on a cold Thursday night looking remarkably respectable and stripped off scarves, hats and coats. They didn’t stop there. Sweaters, shirts, skirts, pants, underwear all end up stashed in a plastic bag by the bar. This is the monthly “Clothing Optional Dinner” for a group of nudists who wanted something a bit more elegant than the wilderness getaways and beach resorts they generally frequent. Around 30 people arrived for the buffet dinner – no hot soup on the menu – most of them middle-aged, several married couples, some singles, the youngest perhaps in their 30s. Health regulations mean staff must remain clothed even if they wanted to join in. And diners must bring something to sit on – a towel or, for discerning women, an elegant silk scarf.
